Bremont H-4 - Hercules Stainless Steel LE
Bremont H-4 Hercules Platinum. Limited to 300 pieces.
At a time of austerity, one American man defied convention to build the largest aircraft in the world. The Bremont H-4 Hercules Limited Edition chronometer salutes this iconic flying boat of the 1940s. Famously known as the ‘Spruce Goose’, the vast silver ship is as legendary as its inventor, Howard Hughes.
The 25 jewel Bremont BWC/02 movement is based on the original proprietary automatic BWC/01 caliber which was built in partnership with movement house, La Joux Perret, and is housed in a beautifully finished 43mm case.
Remarkably, the movement of the Bremont H-4 Hercules has an automatic winding rotor incorporating some original birchwood veneer that took to the air on that famous flight in 1947. The tungsten rotor features this veneer from Howard Hughes’ H-4 Hercules, as four propeller blades. The wood (which was made available only through essential preservation work on the H-4) was carefully shipped to the UK from the Evergreen Aviation & Space Museum in McMinnville Oregon, USA, where it was painstakingly cut to size by the renowned bespoke furniture makers Silver lining. Furthermore, original aileron fabric from the aircraft’s control surfaces can be found sewn into the English made bridle leather watch packaging.
